Bloc Party Announce 2007 Tour Dates, New Album, Frontman Outed?
UK's The Guardian reports that Bloc Party might have a gay/bi frontman. Asked about his preference, Kele Okereke states, "It's not something that I'd be inclined to talk...It isn't black and white. It isn't clear-cut." Is he uncomfortable discussing? Could he just enjoy the ambiguity and speculation?
Regardless of preference, here's the upcoming tour dates:
03-11 Seattle, WA - Paramount Theatre
03-12 Vancouver, British Columbia - Orpheum Theatre
03-13 Portland, OR - Crystal Ballroom
03-15 Austin, TX - SXSW
03-17 San Francisco, CA - Concourse Exhibition
03-19 Los Angeles, CA - Wiltern Theatre
03-20 Los Angeles, CA - Wiltern Theatre
03-23 Chicago, IL - Congress Theatre
03-24 Detroit, MI - Royal Oak Theatre
